Next stage of MANTP project

I'm given to understand that the next stage in the project will be the start of work on the new taxiway Echo. This is scheduled from 3rd June through until mid-November.

Breaking news is that Ethiopian will start a 4 x weekly service from Manchester to Addis Ababa.

Cracking news to get Ethiopian on board. A return of a sub Saharan link has been a long time coming!

Not a very clear map however hopefully it may help.

The work I refer to will be towards the very southern end of the proposed layout, roughly on a line be intermediate holding points C2 and D4. Please note that this diagram is not necessarily the final layout and is subject to change

Also worth noting Ethiopian is expected to be just one of 3 new long haul airlines this winter.

Adding new long haul in the winter (low) season is very impressive. Manchester have really taken that vital step forward from being a (the) principal airport outside London to become a major international gateway that airlines have ambitions to serve, in the same manner that Munich has transitioned in recent years. For businesses looking to locate and source property and staff at sensible prices this transition makes not just northwest England but central and northeast England ever more attractive places to base, if only London centric bosses can see beyond the magnet that is the capital. All that needs to follow if decent surface infrastructure, but i'm not holding my breath on that one!

Doesn't ET724 currently route ADD- BRU via VIE ?

Is VIE being dropped in favour of the MAN add on? or are we looking at a 2 stop to ADD ?

I think VIE is being reshuffled to have new flight numbers.
